I am thrilled to be the new PE teacher at Opal Charter School! In this position, I get to do many of my favorite things. I will be spending time with kids outdoors almost every day. We will be playing games, building community, hiking and exploring nature. I am also very excited to work with such a talented staff. I look forward to lots of collaboration.
Since completing my MAT at Lewis and Clark College, I have been teaching in one form or another for the past twelve years. I was a second and third grade teacher in the West Linn/Wilsonville School District for most of those years, but I’ve also taught environmental education, Spanish, ESL and skiing.
I have two children, Calvin (age five) and Ruby (age 3). They are attending the Early Kindergarten and Pre-school at the Opal Museum School. I feel very lucky to be in the same building as my kids and to know that they have fantastic teachers guiding them during their early years in school.
If you have any questions about the PE program, please don't hesitate to let me know! I look forward to getting to know you and your children this year.
